Cicciolina is one of the most popular restaurants for a romantic dinner in Cusco. The restaurant is one block off the main plaza hidden behind Catedral del Cuzco, through a row of vendors, and across a courtyard. The mood is perfectly set by the slow live music and dim lighting.
The atmosphere at Cicciolina is topped only by the flavors in the dinner. Enjoy a glass of wine or a handcrafted pisco sour with the Alpaca. Very flavorful and tender. Their pastas are fulfilling and amazing as well. The staff is attentive and professional. Overall, Cicciolina is one of the best dinner options in Cusco. You may also find a seat at the bar but for a table it's best to make a dinner reservation a day or two in advance.
